When it comes to drunk driving laws, New York is among the toughest in the nation. From Leandra's Law to sobriety checkpoints, officials rely on multiple enforcement tactics. The penalties for drunk driving are equally aggressive. Depending on the context, even a first-time offender might face felony charges for driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated, especially when a child is a passenger in the car.
If you are arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) or Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs, it is imperative to immediately seek representation from an attorney who is highly familiar with the local criminal justice system. Our law firm has that experience. Our law firm's founding member began his practice in this area over 40 years ago, and another of our attorneys has over five years of experience as a prosecutor in Orange County for over five years, where he handled hundreds of drunk driving cases.
Our local roots directly benefit you. We understand the charges you are facing; we are familiar with the local police, judges, prosecutors and clerks; and we know the way that DWI and DUI cases are processed. That means we know how prosecutors will analyze your case, and how the police will testify at your trial.
We personalize your DWI or DUI defense strategy on several factors. First, we evaluate whether you can make a defense to exclude evidence based on police misconduct or improper arrest procedures. We also know the arguments that can be made against field sobriety tests and breathalyzer tests. Next, we evaluate your plea options based on our familiarity with the local court system and your personal history. Our litigation strategy is optimized for your best outcome.
